I am guessing it's designed to capture the wave from its usual travel direction coming from the southwest/west via West Lamma Channel. By having a hook at the end of the causeways, it can minimize the waves that travel into the shelter, even lesser than having a straight causeway parallel or at an angle to the shore.

I could clearly see the fireworks drifting to the west as they shot up. It was kind of funny.

KPF did a wondeful job with the ICC for HK.

I feel as if two of these towers in Midtown would make up for the original WTC towers NYC lost on 9/11.

Just pondering I quess...

It has been a very long wait to actually see this building materialize, but I'm definately liking what I'm seeing.
